DIVINER
 
High, after the summer
Find all the wells are drunk dry
Miles and miles of starburn
Branded on the hide of the night
 
Diviner
 
Low, before the winter
Loser, these vessels are full
Drop between drop of moonshine
Slipping on the surface of our day
 
Diviner (Water underground)
Diviner (Rock ceiling fossil pool)
Diviner (Blind transparent fish)
Diviner (Seek the liquid dark)
 
HERMAPHRODITE
 
Goddess say there's no use in calling
The past is over and the dark are falling
Hold me closer than you did today
See all misunderstandings evaporate away
 
If you knew how I tried so deep inside
There's just one and I give us to you
If you think that's no good then you should disappear fast
What else can you do ?
 
There's a valley in the back of her mind
Where all of the elements are treating her kind
She lay right back on her forgiving earth
It was something quite unusual, she was giving birth
 
They stole a cradle from the open door
The crowd becoming uglier they were calling out for more
Oh goddess don't let them see how I am
I hope that Jehova got my telegram
 
 
ETHEREAL MESSAGE
 
Cold man is rich in luxurious heat
White empty car at the end of the street
Five thousand angels hang from their strings
Drinking their bourbons and grooming their wings
And they all rose up and flew
This ethereal message down here to you
 
A face at the window of the house where you live
Tells me it's empty, not who you've been with
Five thousand soldiers captured the town
Bringing their dead back from the ground
And every one of them knew
This ethereal message was meant for you
 
Down, down, feathers in the air
Down, down, down everywhere
 
Blessed generations range through the flames
And by the smoke forgetting the names
Five thousand mornings melt into days
Wearing the blues and singing the greys
And their threats never come true
This ethereal message is waiting for you
 
 
MERCURY TOWERS
 
Well it's been a long day
I can't wait to slip out of my skin
And it's been a long way
I can't decide what state I'll be in
 
I live in the tower
It's only an hour away from here
I live in the tower
 
Out of the pink sky
Comes a Spanish radio show
Strange not to feel high
Watch the sleeping city below
 
I watch from my tower
It's only an hour away from here
I live in the tower
Beam from the tower
It's only an hour away from here
I live in the tower
 
Well there's a factory
Down at the end of, like Merlin street
And they pay a good price
Guaranteed and always discreet
When I feel bigger than life
I hold a mirror up to my breath
But it's been a long day
I can't wait to slip out of my skin
 
Skin in the tower
It's only an hour away from here
I live in the tower
Come to the tower
It's only an hour away from here
I live in the tower
High in the tower
It's only an hour away from here
I live in the tower
Curled in the tower...
Sleep in the tower...
 
 
OUT OF THE PINK SKY
Hex (repeat in amongst all the other strange noises)
 
 
FIRE ISLAND
 
First you offer fire
Pure, deluxe
 
Fire island
 
You improved deal
Real fine
 
Fire island
 
Foreign sea premium far
Fire fire fire island
 
Fire island (repeat)
 
IN THE NET
 
Barracuda metal slips through our conversation
Shifting from insomnia to chaste acceleration
Peeling out the pages from a book of random lullabies
Sleeping off the chrysalis waking like a butterfly
 
In the net
In you get
 
When you're standing in the light
You can't see the dark alright
You forget in the net
In you get
 
You got your ocelot that's eating up your birds
All the empty cages empty just two thirds
I found that magic lamp and now I got my wish
But it's just another pond and I'm just a bigger fish
 
 
SILVERMINE
 
Silvermine, I'm falling into this
Silvermine and no way through
Silvermine I can't relinquish this
Silvermine neither can you
 
I led him down to it
Can't get 'round to it
I led him down to it too
I let him loose in it
Can't get used to it
I let him loose in it too
 
Silvermine I'm slipping into this
Silvermine and no way through
Silvermine I can't remember this
Silvermine neither can you
 
 
ELIZABETH GREEN
 
Elizabeth makes abstract mistakes
In Chinatown when everything breaks
Rain in the windows Singapore eyes
Under the ladder and everything twice
 
Elizabeth Green burned her machine
Entered the ashes under column fifteen
The days and the nights are gallantly looped
She falls from a world where dead kings are duped
 
Elizabeth wakes freezing mind lakes
Can't lift a hand for the dust that it makes
The music goes on but the ship has gone down
Down to the bed with a shining glass sound
 
Elizabeth Green deep and marine
Chains planes and pearls and her number thirteen
Mile after mile burn after burn return
 
Return
 
 
AN ARRANGEMENT
 
Oh it's just an arrangement
No I don't care if they see
You think you're sick of being yourself
What you crave is somebody else
Make an arrangement with me
